Summary

Following representations by the Australian Flight Attendants' Association concerning a newly installed seating configuration on VH-OJF, a Qantas Boeing 747-400, a special investigation was undertaken to determine if safety standards had been compromised. The upper deck seating configuration on VH-OJF was compared to the previous exit configuration utilised on Qantas 747-400S. Further comparisons were made between the Boeing 747-200 and SPs operated by Qantas. The investigation determined that while the new seating configuration did meet the regulatory requirements, the previously installed standard did provide a far superior emergency exit facility.
